Amish Friendship Bread + 6 variations

Makes 2 loaves You don’t have to wait an additional tens days to bake – on the day that you split the starter (Day Ten), you can bake with the remaining batter instead of saving a bag for yourself. If you plan to gift the starter, remember to send the instructions. www.friendshipbreadkitchen.com Note: Do not refrigerate the starter. It is normal for the batter to rise and ferment. If air gets in the bag, let it out. DO NOT use a metal spoon or bowl for mixing as it will interfere with the fermenting process.

Ingredients

  • 1/4

    10 day old starter

  • 3

    eggs

  • 1

    cup oil

  • 1/2

    cup milk

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 1/2

    tsp vanilla

  • 2

    tsp cinnamon

  • 1 1/2

    tsp baking powder

  • 1/2

    tsp salt

  • 1/2

    tsp baking soda

  • 2

    cups flour

  • 1-2

    boxes Jell-O instant pudding (any flavor)

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 325F 2. Grease two large loaf pans 3. In a bowl, mix an additional ½ cup sugar and 1 ½ tsp cinnamon 4. Dust the greased pans with sugar/cinnamon mixture 5. Pour the batter evenly into the pans and sprinkle the remaining mixture on the top 6. Bake for one hour or until the bread loosens evenly from the sides and a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean. To make muffins instead of loaves, reduce baking time to 20-25 min. Fill loaf pans or muffin tins one-half to two-thirds full (if you have an eager new starter, I’d recommend only filling to one-half).
